1:15 Economics and the Internet 

Internet visionary, author, blogger and journalist Doc Searls realised sooner than most that the internet was going to change the economy. He's co-authored a book The Cluetrain which pointed out to businesses that everything was going to be anything but business as usual thanks to the advances of the internet. He then went on to write the The Intention of the Economy: When Customers Take Charge.

1:25 How to LOVE your job, No Matter What

It's hump day, on what may be a lot of people's first week back at work since Christmas. But what's the secret to loving your job, no matter what? Auckland University of Technology researcher and author, Dr Kathryn Owler, has been on a quest to reach nirvana in her work. And she may have some answers for the rest of us. If you're interested in participating in Kathryn's research, contact her on kathryn.owler@aut.ac.nz

1:35 The End of Passports?

Passports may become a thing of the past, as Australia looks at making radical changes to international airports. From July, passengers flying into Wellington from Canberra, could pass through immigration and customs, without coming across humans. Manned desks, passenger cards and passports could disappear forever. And the security system overhaul would see these replaced with a biometric self-processing system, called the Seamless Traveller. Dr John Coyne is the head of border security at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute.

3:10 The mysterious mind of the Octopus

Predicting World Cup soccer results, escaping captivity in mysterious ways: many of us have heard the stories about some of the mischief cephalopods can get up to.

Peter Godfrey Smith is a scuba Diver and philosopher of science. He believes interacting with octopus and cuttlefish  is like connecting with aliens.He contemplates why these creatures from the sea have evolved in such a unique and mysterious way in his book Other Minds: The Octopus, the Sea, and the Deep Origins of Consciousness.
